    Q
    What is the correct dilution rate for Prodiamine 65 WDG?
    A

    The first thing you need to know when using an herbicide such as Prodiamine 65 WDG is that the exact amount of water you dilute it with is not important. It is only important to make sure you are using the correct amount of product per 1,000 sq ft of lawn. Use too much and you risk damaging your lawn, use too little and you will not get adequate results. You will need to use 0.185-0.55 oz per 1,000 sq ft . To decide how much water you want to use, you should mark a 1,000 sq ft area, fill your sprayer with water ONLY, and start walking and spraying just as if you were doing the actual application of herbicide. When you are done walking and spraying the 1,000 sq ft area note how much water it took you to spray that area, and that is the amount you will want to mix 0.185-.55 oz of product with for each 1,000 sq ft area that needs to be treated.

    Q
    Pump Sprayer Calibration Needs to Use for Application
    What are you looking for when applying the diluted granules for spray pattern from the pump sprayer as the liquid leaves the wand? What does the calibration require on round-up-style pump sprayer or similar? Is the calibration in regards to the use of "mist-style" spray pattern or "stream-style" spray pattern?
    A

    Calinbration does not refer to the spray pattern used to apply herbicides. Although, we would recommend using a mist stream. You would calibrate by determining the volume of water required to treat 1,000 square feet. Use this calibration volume to determine the amount of water and Prodiamine 65 WDG herbicide needed to treat the target area (see the following calibration example).

    Note: Sprayer calibration (volume of spray needed to treat 1,000 square feet) will vary with each individual operator.

    Steps in Calibration:
    1. Mark an area of 1,000 square feet (i.e. 20 by 50 feet or 25 by 40 feet).
    2. Place the sprayer on a level surface and add water noting the final level of water in the spray tank.
    3. Spray the marked area with a sufficient volume of water to provide uniform coverage. Refill the sprayer to the same level as before measuring the amount of water added. The measured water added to the sprayer is the volume needed to cover 1,000 square feet.
    4. Determine the application rate (fl. oz./1,000 sq. ft.) for Prodiamine 65 WDG from the Recommendations section of this label.
    5. To each volume of water used as measured in step 3, add the amount of Prodiamine 65 WDG as determined in step 4.

    Example: If the sprayer uses 2 gallons of water to cover 1,000 square feet and the desired application rate of Prodiamine 65 WDG is 0.185 - 0.055 oz/1,000 square feet, then you would add 0.185 - 0.055 oz of Prodiamine 65 WDG to every 2 gallons of water to be used."

    Q
    If I spray prodiamine 65 and it rains the next day after spraying .do I need to apply again?
    A

    No  Prodiamine  should be applied prior to a rainfall. It is important to irrigate the area after the product has been applied to activate it. Pre-emergents need to reach the thatch area to prevent the weeds from germinating, so irrigation is very important.

    Does this product come with a measuring tool to measure the fine amount required?
    If not what is the best and ACCURATE way to measure it?
    A
    The Prodiamine 65 WDG does not come with a measuring device. Most folks buy a cheap set of measuring spoons and use the teaspoon and smaller spoons to measure the correct amount for their needs. Be sure to clearly mark the spoons so they are not used for any other needs.

    Q
    What is the difference between Prodiamine 65 WDG and WG within the same chemical?
    Both products have the chemical Prodiamine but one is labeled "WDG" and the other "WG". Besides the difference in price, is there types of grass incompatibility or others reasons for what they do?
    A
    We are assuming you are compaing the two generic forms of the herbicide BarricadeProdiamine 65 WDG and Resolute 65 WG. The only difference between Prodiamine 65 WG and the Resolute 65 WG is that they are made by 2 different manufacturers. They are both contain the same percentage of active ingredient Prodiamine, treat the same pests and applied in the same way. Resolute 65 WG is made by Syngenta (name brand) and Prodiamine 65 WDG is made by Quail-Pro (generic brand) . WG and WDG both stand for Wettable Dispersable Granule, water-dispersible granules must be mixed with water to be applied. Once in water, the granules break apart into fine particles similar to wettable powders.
